The company will soon be testing its first two satellites, Microsat 2A and 2B, which are headed for low-Earth orbit aboard SpaceX's Falcon 9.

FCC application documents filed by SpaceX reveal the true scale of Elon Musk's Starlink ambitions.

On Wednesday, the Falcon 9's payload fairing will be the PAZ satellite. The 43-foot-tall fairing is made of two clamshell-like halves composed of carbon fiber with an aluminum honeycomb core. Now, the company wants to try and recycle a fairing.

SpaceX recovered a payload fairing for the first time in 2017. The company will attempt to bring the fairing back to Earth gently using geotagged parachutes that will guide it down to the Pacific Ocean. The fairing will reorient themselves and reentry into the atmosphere.

However, the new net aboard Mr. Steven will make will make it easier for the payload fairing to be retrieved, according to TechCrunch. It has four large metal arms and a net suspended between the arms.

If the huge net successfully catches the SpaceX gear, it could save the company about $5 million per launch, according to Space.com, a Live Science sister site.
